RCCI stresses on businessmen’s input in budget


The Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) President Mohammad Nasir Mirza has urged Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen to increase consultations with the business community for the upcoming budget 2021-22.

In a statement on Tuesday, Mirza said that the business community has pinned high hopes on the finance minister as Tarin is an experienced man and they are hopeful that his policies would help stabilise the country’s economy and restore the confidence of the business community.

He said that a comprehensive budget proposal was prepared on the occasion of the International Chambers Summit (ICS 2021) organised by the Rawalpindi Chamber. These suggestions should be included in the budget, he added.

Former president of RCCI Sohail Altaf said that all the former finance ministers have not been able to get good results due to lack of consultation with the business community. —TLTP
